November 6th at 7pm, Ann Parent, registered dietitian from Warren, will speak on healthful eating for the holidays, and include time for questions and answers.
The holidays are often approached with concern by those who are trying to adapt their lifestyles to include more nutritious diets. Many see the holidays as a “deal breaker” when trying to follow diabetic or heart healthy diets. Parent will discuss ways in which the foods we enjoy at the holidays can be aligned with recommendations for a nutritious diet; focusing on what is enjoyable to eat at the holidays rather than what must be avoided.
Parent, a Registered Dietitian, has lived and worked in the midcoast for 34 years. She worked at PenBay Medical Center before leaving to specialize in geriatric nutrition. She is currently employed by Genesis Healthcare as well as providing consultation to Quarry Hill Retirement Community.
